Short & Sweet: Quick Reviews Of Must Read Summer Books


Is there any better than a wonderful historical fiction book? No, there’s not! I love being whisked away to another place and time and Three Words for Goodbye by Hazel Gaynor and Heather Webb needs to find a place on your To-Read list this summer.

Take a look:

New York, 1937: When estranged sisters Clara and Madeleine Sommers learn their grandmother is dying, they agree to fulfill her last wish: to travel across Europe—together. They are to deliver three letters, in which Violet will say goodbye to those she hasn’t seen since traveling to Europe forty years earlier; a journey inspired by famed reporter, Nellie Bly.

Clara, ever-dutiful, sees the trip as an inconvenient detour before her wedding to millionaire Charles Hancock, but it’s also a chance to embrace her love of art. Budding journalist Madeleine relishes the opportunity to develop her ambitions to report on the growing threat of Hitler’s Nazi party and Mussolini’s control in Italy.

Constantly at odds with each other as they explore the luxurious Queen Mary, the Orient Express, and the sights of Paris and  Venice,, Clara and Madeleine wonder if they can fulfil Violet’s wish, until a shocking truth about their family brings them closer together. But as they reach Vienna to deliver the final letter, old grudges threaten their reconciliation again. As political tensions rise, and Europe feels increasingly volatile, the pair are glad to head home on the Hindenburg, where fate will play its hand in the final stage of their journey.

Don’t miss this book! It hits the shelves on July 27th.



When I read this synopsis, I knew I’d love All The Little Hopes by Leah Weiss. Friendship and North Carolina against a WWII backdrop? Need I say more?

A Southern story of a friendship forged by books and bees, when the timeless troubles of growing up meet the murky shadows of World War II.

Deep in the tobacco land of North Carolina, nothing’s the same since the boys shipped off to war and worry took their place. Thirteen-year-old Lucy Brown is curious and clever, but she can’t make sense of it all. Then Allie Bert Tucker comes to town, an outcast with a complicated past, and Lucy believes that together they can solve crimes. Just like her hero, Nancy Drew.

That chance comes when a man goes missing, a woman stops speaking, and an eccentric gives the girls a mystery that takes them beyond the ordinary. Their quiet town, seasoned with honeybees and sweet tea, becomes home to a Nazi prisoner-of-war camp—and more men go missing. The pair set out to answer the big question: do we ever really know who the enemy is?

This incredibly compelling book will be out on July 27.



When I saw B.A. Paris had a new book coming out, I knew I needed to read it. Once I started The Therapist, I couldn’t stop reading. It pulled me in and didn’t let me go until the very end. This is the best kind of suspense! I will always want to read what this author writes.

The synopsis:

When Alice and Leo move into a newly renovated house in The Circle, a gated community of exclusive houses, it is everything they’ve dreamed of. But appearances can be deceptive…

As Alice is getting to know her neighbors, she discovers a devastating secret about her new home, and begins to feel a strong connection with Nina, the therapist who lived there before.

Alice becomes obsessed with trying to piece together what happened two years before. But no one wants to talk about it. Her neighbors are keeping secrets and things are not as perfect as they seem…

This will be published on July 13th.


If you enjoy books by Sophie Kinsella, which I do, you will love the books that Beth O’Leary writes. She has the same talent as Sophie, for writing light stories that make you laugh and fill you with happiness. I loved The Road Trip, her latest, and pictured it as a movie for the entire story.

Here’s the plot:

Four years ago, Dylan and Addie fell in love under the Provence sun. Wealthy Oxford student Dylan was staying at his friend Cherry’s enormous French villa; wild child Addie was spending her summer as the on-site caretaker. Two years ago, their relationship officially ended. They haven’t spoken since.

Today, Dylan’s and Addie’s lives collide again. It’s the day before Cherry’s wedding, and Addie and Dylan crash cars at the start of the journey there. The car Dylan was driving is wrecked, and the wedding is in rural Scotland—he’ll never get there on time by public transport.

So, along with Dylan’s best friend, Addie’s sister, and a random guy on Facebook who needed a ride, they squeeze into a space-challenged Mini and set off across Britain. Cramped into the same space, Dylan and Addie are forced to confront the choices they made that tore them apart—and ask themselves whether that final decision was the right one after all.

The Road Trip is out now, get it and read it immediately!



I was totally intrigued as soon as I read the premise for The Plot by Jean Hanff Korelitz. Its brilliant and interesting and gripping.

Take a look:

Jacob Finch Bonner was once a promising young novelist with a respectably published first book. Today, he’s teaching in a third-rate MFA program and struggling to maintain what’s left of his self-respect; he hasn’t written—let alone published—anything decent in years. When Evan Parker, his most arrogant student, announces he doesn’t need Jake’s help because the plot of his book in progress is a sure thing, Jake is prepared to dismiss the boast as typical amateur narcissism. But then . . . he hears the plot.

Jake returns to the downward trajectory of his own career and braces himself for the supernova publication of Evan Parker’s first novel: but it never comes. When he discovers that his former student has died, presumably without ever completing his book, Jake does what any self-respecting writer would do with a story like that—a story that absolutely needs to be told.

In a few short years, all of Evan Parker’s predictions have come true, but Jake is the author enjoying the wave. He is wealthy, famous, praised and read all over the world. But at the height of his glorious new life, an e-mail arrives, the first salvo in a terrifying, anonymous campaign: You are a thief, it says.

As Jake struggles to understand his antagonist and hide the truth from his readers and his publishers, he begins to learn more about his late student, and what he discovers both amazes and terrifies him. Who was Evan Parker, and how did he get the idea for his “sure thing” of a novel? What is the real story behind the plot, and who stole it from whom?

While the book started slow for me, it picked up and I couldn’t put it down.

This is out now!


Sue Watson is another writer whose books I will always want to read. She doesn’t disappoint with her stories, they always keep me on the edge of my seat. The Forever Home was no exception.


Carly had thought they’d always live there. The beautiful Cornish cliffside house they’d taken on as a wreck, that Mark had obsessively re-designed and renovated – a project that had made him famous. It was where they’d raised their children, where they’d sat cosily on the sofa watching storms raging over the sea below. It was where they’d promised to keep each other’s secrets…

Until now. Because Mark has fallen in love. With someone he definitely shouldn’t have. Someone who isn’t Carly. And suddenly their family home doesn’t feel like so much of a safe haven.

Carly thinks forever should mean forever though: it’s her home and she’ll stay there. Even the dark family secrets it contains feel like they belong to her. But someone disagrees. And, as threats start to arrive at her front door, it becomes clear, someone will stop at nothing. Because someone wants to demolish every last thing that makes Carly feel safe. Forever.

It was a pretty fast read and I loathed the character of Mark and wanted to shake some sense into Carly many times! This is a dramatic twisty story that held me captive until the final page.

Published on June 4th.



Let’s take a moment and admire the beautiful cover of The Glorious Guinness Girls by Emily Hourican. Now that we’ve taken in the wonderful design of the cover art, let’s see what this fantastic novel is about:

Descendants of the founder of the Guinness beer empire, they were the toast of 1920s high society, darlings of the press, with not a care in the world. But Felicity knows better. Sent to live with them as a child because her mother could no longer care for her, she grows up as the sisters’ companion. Both an outsider and a part of the family, she witnesses the complex lives upstairs and downstairs, sees the compromises and sacrifices beneath the glamorous surface. Then, at a party one summer’s evening, something happens that sends shock waves through the entire household.

Inspired by a remarkable true story and fascinating real events, The Glorious Guinness Girls is an unforgettable novel about the haves and have-nots, one that will make you ask if where you find yourself is where you truly belong.

I knew nothing at all about the Guinness girls so this was a fun read for me, showing me people from history that I didn’t know much about before reading the book. I love the glamour of society back in the 1920s and of course, reading about Ireland and London is always a welcome treat.  This is a charming story and I especially loved the details of the time period.

Out now.



I’ll read anything by Mark Edwards, he is a fantastic author whose books I have read for years now. When I saw The Hollows, I knew I had to read it and I was not disappointed. Right away I was pulled in by the character of Tom, taking his daughter on a trip to Maine. Who doesn’t want to go to Maine? Besides Tom’s daughter. But once there, they learn a mysterious murder took place years ago at this very spot. And when things start to happen around them, Tom definitely questions his decision of vacation destination.

Look here:

With his marriage over and his career in freefall, journalist Tom decides to reconnect with his fourteen-year-old daughter, Frankie. Desperate to spend precious time together now that they live an ocean apart, he brings her to Hollow Falls, a cabin resort deep in the woods of Maine.

From the outset there’s something a little eerie about the place—strange whispers in the trees, wind chimes echoing through the forest—but when Tom meets true-crime podcasters David and Connie, he receives a chilling warning. Hollow Falls has a gruesome history: twenty years ago this week, a double slaying shut down the resort. The crime was never solved, and now the woods are overrun with murder-obsessed tourists looking to mark the grim anniversary.

It’s clear that there’s something deeply disturbing going on at Hollow Falls. And as Tom’s dream trip turns into a nightmare, he and Frankie are faced with a choice: uncover the truth, or get out while they still can.

Coming out on July 8.


At this point, I don’t need to know what the book is about, if I see that Riley Sager has written it, I’ll want to read it. All I knew before digging into Survive The Night, was that it took place in the 1990s. I love a different era for a book like this.

Once I started reading, I didn’t want to stop. I was so into it that I read it in two sittings!

It was fantastic.

If you are looking for a book that will literally keep you on your toes, this is one that you must read! 


Josh Baxter, the man behind the wheel, is a virtual stranger to Charlie. They met at the campus ride board, each looking to share the long drive home to Ohio. Both have good reasons for wanting to get away. For Charlie, it’s guilt and grief over the shocking murder of her best friend, who became the third victim of the man known as the Campus Killer. For Josh, it’s to help care for his sick father—or so he says.

The longer she sits in the passenger seat, the more Charlie notices there’s something suspicious about Josh, from the holes in his story about his father to how he doesn’t want her to see inside the trunk. As they travel an empty, twisty highway in the dead of night, an increasingly anxious Charlie begins to think she’s sharing a car with the Campus Killer. Is Josh truly dangerous? Or is Charlie’s jittery mistrust merely a figment of her movie-fueled imagination?

One thing is certain—Charlie has nowhere to run and no way to call for help. Trapped in a terrifying game of cat and mouse played out on pitch-black roads and in neon-lit parking lots, Charlie knows the only way to win is to survive the night.

Coming out on July 6, pre-order now!



The Missing Treasures of Amy Ashton by Eleanor Ray is one of those books I love with quirky characters. If you liked Eleanor Oliphant or The Rosie Project, you will want to read this book. Amy is a hoarder and if you know anything about those who hoard, it’s a form of anxiety. There are almost always deeper issues than simply wanting to hold on to items. I felt such empathy for the main character and could relate to her on a few levels!


Amy Ashton once dreamed of becoming an artist—of creating beautiful objects. But now she simply collects them. Aquamarine bottles, bright yellow crockery, deep Tuscan red pots (and the odd slow-cooker) take up every available inch of space in her house. Having suffered a terrible tragedy—one she staunchly refuses to let herself think about, thank you very much—she’s decided that it’s easier to love things than people. Things are safe. Things will never leave you.

But when a new family moves in next door with two young boys, one of whom has a collection of his own, Amy’s carefully managed life starts to unravel, prompting her to question why she began to close herself off in the first place. As Amy embarks on a journey back into her past, she has to contend with nosy neighbors, a meddlesome government worker, the inept police, and a little boy whose love of bulldozers might just let Amy open up her heart—and her home—again.

I loved the story and the author’s writing style, I highly recommend that you get it when it comes out on June 8th.



If you want a super twisty, roller coaster of a book then you will want to get your hands on Just Married by Kiersten Modglin. Whew! What a tremendously wild ride this book was as you wondered who you could trust. Pretty much no one.

Check it out:

I just wish we’d gone to the police when someone left a note on the doormat saying: She’s dead, you’re next. Ryan said I was overreacting, but I don’t understand why he won’t go to the cops now things are getting worse. Can I trust my husband?

I’ve known about the terrible thing that Ryan did for years and it’s been tearing me apart. Last night I told him I would always keep his secret. But is the man I married hiding something else from me?

Now someone has cut the phone lines and we’re trapped here. Ryan swears he has no idea what’s going on and just wants to keep us safe. I’m here alone in the middle of the dark forest with the man I thought I could trust. My heart is racing and there’s no one I can call…

My husband promised till death do us part. Am I about to find out what that means?

I cannot wait to read more from Kiersten! Get this on July 5th.



If you haven’t read anything by Lucinda Berry, go check out her books now. Every single book has been excellent. You know you are in good hands when you pick up a book that she’s written. And The Secrets of Us was no different.

Krystal is fiercely loyal to her sister (they are foster care sisters) Nichole. And when Nichole is committed to a hospital and has a psychotic breakdown, Krystal is desperate to get through to her, to figure out what has happened in Nichole’s brain to cause her to nearly murder her husband.


Foster sisters Krystal and Nichole have always been there for each other, so when Nichole is committed to a psychiatric hospital after trying to kill her husband, Krystal drops everything to defend her.

Scarred by a hard upbringing, Nichole and Krystal managed to construct comfortable lives for themselves. Krystal became a respected lawyer, and Nichole was happily married to an architect—until Nichole starts raving that her husband isn’t her husband, believing that he’s an imposter.

Driven by fierce loyalty, Krystal starts asking questions, but she’s not sure she can bear the answers. Her investigation leads to the sisters’ dark shared past…to a horrible tragedy and a well-guarded lie that cemented their sisterly bond.

But that lie can’t kill the truth—the battered, gasping, clawing truth that’s coming for them both. Now Krystal and Nichole must both fight for the lives they’ve built before they’re consumed by the one they left behind.

WOW. The writing, the pace, the story… all very, very good! A must-read. This book is out now so get it today and start reading!



This was a good book from K.L. Slater who is on my list of authors to watch. The Evidence is an entertaining story about a podcast host who is determined to share the story of a woman who killed her husband. But did she kill him or did something else happen? Esme is going to find out by interviewing Simone for her podcast.  At the same time, Esme’s sister is beaten and left for dead, she is in critical care in the hospital. Who is out to get her? And is this related to Esme digging into a controversial crime?

Here are the details:

Everyone’s heard of Simone Fischer. The young mother accused of killing her husband in cold blood, one sunny afternoon, while their son played in the room next door.

So when journalist Esme secures an exclusive interview with her it feels like the opportunity of a lifetime. Simone has remained silent since her husband’s death but after a decade in prison, she is willing to talk to Esme. And Esme, recently freed from her own toxic marriage, is confident she can get Simone to open up.

At their first meeting, when Esme sees Simone sitting across the table from her in jeans and a lemon tunic top, she is stuck by her ordinariness. Then Simone begins to tell her story of an abusive relationship where she was a prisoner in her own home, and Esme decides that the truth needs to come out.

But not everyone is pleased that Esme is telling Simone’s story. And when Esme’s beloved sister is left for dead in a nearby wood, Esme’s life begins to unravel. Forced to question what Simone has told her, she can’t help but wonder if murder was the only way out of Simone’s marriage. Why has it taken Simone so long to tell the world the truth? And will the consequences be devastating for Esme?

This one comes out on July 1! Pre-order now.



A young woman goes missing from a cruise ship and a mystery surrounds her death in this book, This Love Kills Me by A.B. Whelan. I do enjoy a missing persons story especially when something happens on a cruise ship and there’s a wealthy family involved.

Here’s what you need to know:

A family cruise. A murder. A mystery. Secrets and lies. Sex and betrayal.

Trusting her in-laws was her first mistake.  Julia Rose, an acclaimed millionaire fantasy author, wife, and mother to a young boy, disappears on a family cruise. Did someone push her overboard? Or did she fall?

Three years after the incident, a beautiful young woman shows up in Manhattan, calling herself Annie Adams. With the help of Julia’s former attorney, Annie establishes herself as the new estate manager of the Rose family. But Annie didn’t take the job to make Julia’s widower richer. She is in the city to find out who tried to kill Julia and why, and make them pay.

When her dedication turns into obsession, Annie has to decide if she is willing to pay the high price for bringing justice.

This book veered into something I didn’t anticipate! Whew! It’s heavy and pretty intense! I wasn’t sure about the character of Annie, she was (to me) an unreliable narrator who I didn’t know if I could trust. Actually, I didn’t trust anyone in this book so I was definitely questioning everything.

This is out now!



I was super excited to read Not A Happy Family by Shari Lapena. I’m a huge fan of her books and she is another author who never lets me down! Everything I read from her is so darn good. Another author whose books I’m excited to read no matter what they are about.

Here’s the scoop:

Brecken Hill in upstate New York is an expensive place to live. You have to be rich to have a house there, and Fred and Sheila Merton certainly are rich. But even all their money can’t protect them when a killer comes to call. The Mertons are brutally murdered after a fraught Easter dinner with their three adult kids. Who, of course, are devastated.

Or are they? They each stand to inherit millions. They were never a happy family, thanks to their vindictive father and neglectful mother, but perhaps one of the siblings is more disturbed than anyone knew. Did someone snap after that dreadful evening? Or did another person appear later that night with the worst of intentions? That must be what happened. After all, if one of the family were capable of something as gruesome as this, you’d know.

Wouldn’t you?

The kids were all pretty unlikable, they each had their own reasons for being upset with their parents. I loved the way the book set each character up so that they could very well be responsible for the brutal murder and I was guessing until the end.

This would make a really good miniseries or TV show! It comes out on July 27, pre-order and clear your calendar!



I knew from reading the synopsis that I’d enjoy I Don’t Forgive You by Aggie Blum Thompson and I was correct. I was completely swept up in this well-written, clever, suspenseful book and I highly recommend it!

Here’s the plot:

An accomplished photographer and the devoted mom of an adorable little boy, Allie Ross has just moved to an upscale DC suburb, the kind of place where parenting feels like a competitive sport. Allie’s desperate to make a good first impression. Then she’s framed for murder.

It all starts at a neighborhood party when a local dad corners Allie and calls her by an old, forgotten nickname from her dark past. The next day, he is found dead.

Soon, the police are knocking at her door, grilling her about a supposed Tinder relationship with the man, and pulling up texts between them. She learns quickly that she’s been hacked and someone is impersonating her online. Her reputation—socially and professionally—is at stake; even her husband starts to doubt her. As the killer closes in, Allie must reach back into a past she vowed to forget in order to learn the shocking truth of who is destroying her life.

Absolutely loved this one and I need more like it. When a book is compelling and fast-paced with a plot that keeps me totally engaged, well, nothing makes me happier!

This comes out on June 8, don’t miss it.




Isn’t the cover of this book fantastic? I know you aren’t supposed to judge a book by its cover but this is so darn cute, I love it! The Last Summer at the Golden Hotel by Elyssa Friedland doesn’t just have an eye-catching cover, it’s also a fabulous story.

As soon as I saw Catskills, I thought about Dirty Dancing. I can’t help it! How fun would it be to grow up vacationing at a resort in the Catskills?

Here is the synopsis:

In its heyday, The Golden Hotel was the crown jewel of the hotter-than-hot Catskills vacation scene. For more than sixty years, the Goldman and Weingold families – best friends and business partners – have presided over this glamorous resort which served as a second home for well-heeled guests and celebrities. But the Catskills are not what they used to be – and neither is the relationship between the Goldmans and the Weingolds. As the facilities and management begin to fall apart, a tempting offer to sell forces the two families together again to make a heart-wrenching decision. Can they save their beloved Golden or is it too late?

Long-buried secrets emerge, new dramas and financial scandal erupt, and everyone from the traditional grandparents to the millennial grandchildren wants a say in the hotel’s future. Business and pleasure clash in this fast-paced, hilarious, nostalgia-filled story, where the hotel owners rediscover the magic of a bygone era of nonstop fun even as they grapple with what may be their last resort.

Such a fabulous story, a must-read for this summer. Out now so get a copy immediately!



This was a fun read and I was laughing the whole way through thanks to the rapid-fire wit of Patrick. The Guncle by Steven Rowley is the perfect book to read poolside with a cocktail or if you’re like me, on the couch with a ThermoFlask of water and three dogs.

Here’s the plot:

Patrick, or Gay Uncle Patrick (GUP, for short), has always loved his niece, Maisie, and nephew, Grant. That is, he loves spending time with them when they come out to Palm Springs for weeklong visits, or when he heads home to Connecticut for the holidays. But in terms of caretaking and relating to two children, no matter how adorable, Patrick is honestly a bit out of his league.

So when tragedy strikes and Maisie and Grant lose their mother and Patrick’s brother has a health crisis of his own, Patrick finds himself suddenly taking on the role of primary guardian. Despite having a set of “Guncle Rules” ready to go, Patrick has no idea what to expect, having spent years barely holding on after the loss of his great love, a somewhat-stalled career, and a lifestyle not-so-suited to a six- and a nine-year-old. Quickly realizing that parenting–even if temporary–isn’t solved with treats and jokes, Patrick’s eyes are opened to a new sense of responsibility, and the realization that, sometimes, even being larger than life means you’re unfailingly human.

Patrick goes through some character changes throughout the book and while he is quick and witty and makes tons of cultural references back to the 80s (like A LOT of them), he’s also flawed and a sympathetic character as he deals with his own grief.

This is out now!



Remember this author: Hilary Davidson, then go read everything she writes. I had high hopes for Her Last Breath and it did NOT disappoint! Hilary is a fantastically talented writer who has written a few books and they are all amazing.

Her Last Breath has been receiving rave reviews and it really is as good as everyone says! It’s a suspenseful story that keeps you reading until the very end.

Here’s the synopsis:

When her beloved sister Caroline dies suddenly, Deirdre is heartbroken. However, her sorrow turns to bone-chilling confusion when she receives a message Caroline sent days earlier warning that her death would be no accident. Long used to being a pariah to her family, Deirdre covers her tattoos and heads to Manhattan for her sister’s funeral.

The message claimed Caroline’s husband, Theo, killed his first wife and got away with it. Reeling from the news, Deirdre confronts Theo on the way to the cemetery, and he reveals both his temper and his suspicion that Deirdre’s “perfect” sister was having an affair.

Paranoid and armed with just enough information to make her dangerous, Deirdre digs into the disturbing secrets buried with Caroline. But as she gets closer to the truth, she realizes that her own life may be at risk…and that there may be more than one killer in the family.

This book is coming out on July 1! Pre-order now. Or if you are a Prime Member of Amazon, you can get it early (and free) through Amazon First Reads here.



If you were a teenager in the 80s, then you grew up knowing all about the glamour of the Red Door. Growing up outside of Manhattan and reading fashion magazines as I did, I was familiar with the glamour and the beauty of Elizabeth Arden and I dreamed of the day when I would waltz through that fire engine red door and receive a head to toe makeover.

Well, that didn’t happen as planned, I never did get to have a makeover or even get my hair done at the famous salon, but the intrigue of that red door persists. Behind The Red Door by Louise Clare Johnson takes us right into the story of the famous woman herself, Elizabeth Arden. 

Check it out:

Nearly a century before #girlboss culture, Glossier ads, and glammed-up influencers were even glimmers on the horizon, there was Elizabeth Arden – the alter ego of Florence Nightingale Graham, a small-town Canadian girl who pioneered the global beauty industry (valued at $532B today!) and became the world’s wealthiest self-made woman.

By the end of the 1930s, it was said: “there are only three American names known in every single corner of the globe: Singer Sewing, Coca-Cola, and Elizabeth Arden.” And yet, so few today know her story — which, with the passage of time and the company changing hands in recent years, is under greater threat than ever of being lost to the footnotes of history.

Behind the Red Door takes readers on an exhilarating journey alongside two young women from the Toronto suburbs who arrive in Manhattan with big ambitions and bigger work ethics: Elizabeth (“Liz”) Arden and Louise (“Lou”) Johnson, who began an internship at Arden’s NYC headquarters in 2008 and worked her way up to senior global marketing manager before leaving to pursue a degree at Harvard in 2014.

A unique blend of biography and memoir, Behind the Red Door is structured chronologically in alternating “Liz” and “Lou” vignettes, following both women as they turn themselves into the success stories they once dreamed of becoming… and discover their true joys, hopes, fears, and inner strength along the way.

In Liz’s timeline — peppered with fascinating facts about the cosmetic industry’s history, scenes of New York City at peak old-world glamour, and bold-faced names including Queen Elizabeth II and Marilyn Monroe (both fans and friends) — the book charts new territory in revealing the extraordinary, stranger-than-fiction story of the first woman to grace the cover of TIME Magazine, reclaiming Elizabeth’s place as a feminist icon who redefined beauty and paved the way for generations of entrepreneurs, activists and independent women to come.

In 2008, exactly one hundred years after “Liz” moved to Manhattan with dreams of becoming a self-made woman, the author makes the very same journey to begin her dream internship at Elizabeth Arden HQ. The age of social media is just beginning to dawn, the hustle-and-grind lifestyle is de rigueur, and at eighteen years old, “Lou” knows next to nothing about the beauty industry, but finds spiritual kinship with the woman who built it. In a few short years, her lifestyle looks a lot like the Millennial dream, with junior executive positions in Manhattan, Geneva, London… but as she ultimately uncovers in her diary entries addressed to Liz, it doesn’t quite feel like her dream after all.

This is such a fun and interesting book. It’s rich in details, entertaining,  and I loved every page.

Get it now!
